“Best in its class”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2011

I don't have anything bad to say about this property (except that it's totally non-smoking). Staff couldn't have been friendlier, room was spacious and squeaky clean, there was a large selection of TV channels and, once I had figured out how to get there, I found the location to be very convenient to I-4 and only about 10 minutes to Ybor City/downtown. The casino and fairgrounds are only a few miles away in the other direction on I-4. My rate was reasonable and, while the surrounding area is not the greatest, I never felt threatened. The free breakfast, in addition to the usual suspects, offered eggs and sausage.

As for the previous review of this property that complained about the prevelance of liquor stores in the area--well Bunky, that's Florida.

Room Tip: Stay on the side away from the pool and/or I-4.

This hotel was very nice, even much nicer than I expected. We were very pleasantly surpirsed. The lobby was standard - similar to other chains. But, the room was HUGE (I think we had a handicap accessible room), very clean, and well furnished/equipped. The staff was very nice. The continental breakfast was nothing fancy, but did the trick. The fitness room was average. I am not very familiar with the area, but the hotel seems to be well situated. It's not in walking distance to Ybor City, but a few miles drive, and located on/near the main highway. I would absolutely stay here again! It was great value, and very nice room given the cost.

We spent 5 nights here in late April. The room was nice. The beds were comfortable and we especially like the duvet bed covers. The breakfast was good and the staff were helpful. The pool was a little loud and the 10:00pm pool closing was not enforced, but with the A/C on did not bother us. Many have commented on the neighborhood, but the hotel is well insulated from the neighborhood and we felt safe and secure at all times. It was a very easy drive to and from Busch/Adventure Island daily. We have put this hotel as our #1 for Tampa stays. Salem's Gyros & Subs is just down the street. For fast food, their buffalo wings and fried seafood platters were very good.

Nothing fancy about this place, but the room was clean, the pool was nice, and the breakfast was okay. It's in an ugly location, close to a major overpass, and the directions aren't obvious, but the front desk staff was pleasant and for the price it was fine.

This is a relatively new property that is very serviceable and excellent value. It was built as a "pre-fab", so the outside architecture is pretty plain, but the rooms are quite nice for the price and have everything you need. The breakfasts are particularly good and the staff is very accommodating. I was impressed by the desk clerk and the "breakfast lady". Both cheerful and motivated. I was not thrilled with the neighborhood immediately near the hotel, but it was fine and the hotel's location was perfect for my business in South Tampa.

I would happily stay there again. Definitely consider if you are looking for good value and a very clean, new, comfortable place in the area.

Room Tip: It can be a LONG walk to your room. Check 1st.

We spent a night at this hotel on March 27th and have nothing bad to say about it. I'm not sure how great the area is but we had no real security concerns.
